Founder & Creator:
FoEmotes are emotes made by Pezminer12, otherwise known as MappingPez. It started when he wanted to make the Wikia feel special, so he made a blog post called FoEmotes! This was a project that was quickly made in Paint. Other mappers got inspired to make their own emotes, like TKAFan, or Michigan Mapper made Tikojis, and Starring64 made his own simple emotes. FoEmotes were scrapped, however, due to lack of artistic precision and size of the files.
MappingPez later got the idea of making FoEmotes based on Mapperballs. He precisely drew a circle, colored it in, drew on it, made the eyes, and called it (MPHappy). He thought he could do more, so he made a section on his page, dedicating it to the new FoEmotes. Other people soon asked for FoEmotes, like Lisastr67 and Mapmaker023. Soon enough, it became a remarkable success! But one day, due to Ethan's angry ego after Trio, he overreacted seeing that MappingPez had made him some FoEmotes to be nice and share gratitude. He vandalized MappingPez's page and took them off. Then, he destroyed the templates, later insulting MappingPez about it.
On March 23rd, 2016, MappingPez retired FoEmotes, because so many Users had requested him to make them, and he could not make all of them in time. They also caused lots of conflicts, making people angry and damaging his reputation. He decided to retire them to end further conflict.
FoEmotes are in chat, added by Batran99 or Goldenrebel25. The current FoEmotes in chat are here.
A list of the full FoEmotes can be found here.
This is the entire history of FoEmotes, all in one section.
Pezminer12 (MappingPez) wanted to make something to make the wiki feel special. So he drew a circle and filled it in with yellow, and called it good for a FoEmote. He draw all sorts of faces on it, and this inspired other mappers to make their own, like Starring and TKA. But then several mappers were critics and the emotes were scrapped.
Later, Pez decided to make FoEmotes by drawing them as mapperballs with different expressions. So in Paint, he made the first modern FoEmote: . And after that, he made more expressions of himself. Suddenly, people started asking for FoEmotes as themselves. He made Mapmaker023, Happydance9, Ironhand21, MikiPL004, and a couple more mappers.
The FoEmotes Crisis
After lots of more emotes were made, EthanConquistador took notice when Pezminer12 made him emotes. He posted a message on Pezminer12's wall, stating to take down the emotes of himself, or he would declare war. Pezminer12 said that he was overreacting. But then shortly after Pezminer12 said that, EthanConquistador stripped the FoEmotes from his page and deleted the templates, as a "threat" to Pezminer12. Administrators took notice and ended the Crisis.
The First Inactivity
FoEmotes went inactive after The FoEmotes Crisis, but Happydance9 wanted his FoEmotes taken down. The situation has not been addressed since. Batran99 planned to implement them as emoticons into the chat, but he didn't.
The FoEmotes Mini-Crisis
In Early 2015, Starring94 said he was going to start producing FoEmotes himself, when the page stated that Pezminer12 makes them. Pezminer12 noticed this and started making FoEmotes again, making FoEmotes of Asdf Mapping, SunnyKhan688, and David Mapper Then, after a short conversation in Live Chat, Starring94 apologized and removed his reply on Avajatar's thread.
On January 20th, 2015, Batran99 added the first FoEmotes to chat. Then, on February 16th, 2015, Goldenrebel25 added the second range of FoEmotes in-chat. Soon after that, Disturbedfan1100 added the third range of FoEmotes in-chat. These added more of a point to FoEmotes, as they could be used as Emoticons in the Chat.
The Second FoEmotes Mini-Crisis
In the comments section of the FoEmotes page, GMapping claims authority over FoEmotes, saying that Pezminer12 is inactive with FoEmotes, and that Users that have given their request have been waiting lots of months for their FoEmotes. Pezminer12 strikes back, saying that FoEmotes are copyrighted by him, and no other Mapper can make FoEmotes.
The Second FoEmotes Crisis
In the comments section of the FoEmotes page, GMapping claims authority over FoEmotes, saying that Pezminer12 is inactive with FoEmotes, and that Users that have given their request have been waiting lots of months for their FoEmotes. Pezminer12 strikes back, saying that FoEmotes are copyrighted by him, and no other Mapper can make FoEmotes. GMapping blanks Pezminer12's page three times, but the vandalism is reverted by Pezminer12. He then tells Mindria on Skype to block GMapping, and warns GMapping that he will get blocked. After that, GMapping reported Pezminer12 to the staff, claiming that Pezminer12 had "insulted" him and Litauen Mapper.
After realizing that the community was growing and that more people wanted FoEmotes, Pezminer12 then decided to retire from making FoEmotes, posting it on his FoEmotes page. This was responded to by mixed criticism, with some accepting that Pezminer12 had a lot of work on his hands, while others said that he was being lazy.
